I attended South Dakota State University and earned a Bachelor of Music Education degree. As a music instructor primarily, I want my students to have many great experiences. I would like my students to leave with an understanding of musical artistry. Music is about so much more than singing or playing correct pitches and reading notes on the page. It is about the process of creating art. Music can be valuable in any future group setting, be it college or in the work force. I also will strive to teach my students how music can relate to other curricular subjects, like Math, English, and History, incorporating elements from each during the lessons. Experiences in music can influence teens forever; and, I hope to help positively influence them. I want to share a love of music and the artistry behind it with my students, while showing how music interrelates with the core curriculum.
